Abstract

The life of Borodin, who was better known as a composer than as a chemist, is briefly outlined, along with a consideration of his musical and chemical activities. His creations, both musical and scientific, are relatively few, but their quality is high, especially in music. His limited output was due to his lack of adequate time rather than to any innate conflict between art and science.
